Since 1996, the NWHF has served the Northwest herbal community. Over the years we have hosted hundreds of famous and not-so-famous herbalists as workshop presenters. Started by Skeeter Michael Pilarski. Great place for herbal networking
You don’t have to be an “herbalist” or herbal expert to attend the event. All levels of knowledge are welcome. If you want to learn about herbs than this is for you too. We have kept our day prices low to make it possible for people to check us out, take some classes, visit the herbal marketplace to see the herbal wares and services available and enjoy some entertainment.
We are looking for presenters, vendors, worktraders, sponsors and attendees.

Michael “Skeeter” Pilarski has lived and farmed in the semi-arid Inland Northwest since 1972. He took his first Permaculture Design Course in 1982. In 1986 he helped organize and graduated from the 1st Drylands Permaculture Design Course taught by Bill Mollison who was one of the leading drylands experts in the world. In 1988, he published a Resource Guide to Sustainable Land Use in Arid and Semi-Arid Lands. 1988 was also the year he started teaching permaculture design courses. In the ensuing two decades he taught 40 permaculture design courses in various climates. He has accumulated a lot of dryland knowledge over the years and wants to pass it on.
